For me, one of the most difficult things to plan for when heading out for a weekend at the hunting camp is what groceries to take. I don’t want to take so much food that it will end up back in the cooler and brought home again. Also, we don’t always want to grill for every meal so I figured out a way to get three meals out of one evening at the BBQ grill.
With the list of groceries that I’m going to share, you can prepare grilled chicken and vegetables, huevos rancheros, and grilled chicken tacos; one evening at the grill, three meals. Of course some of the veggies can vary according to preference. The veggies needed for the tacos and huevos rancheros will be indicated.
- chicken thighs (about 2 for each person plus one extra per person for the tacos)
- one red bell pepper per person (bell pepper will also be used in the tacos)
- 1 small onion per person, thinly sliced (can be served with the chicken, will be used in huevos rancheros and tacos)
- 1 jalapenño per person, stem end, seeds removed (will be used in the huevos rancheros and tacos)
- other veggie of choice to grill for dinner the first night, suggestions include, asparagus, yellow or zucchini squash (or calabaza if you can get it), or whatever you prefer
- olive oil or olive oil cooking spray
- seasoned salt
- 2 eggs per person
- 2 cans of fire roasted tomatoes
- Flour tortillas, the cook-yourself kind if you can find them in the refrigerated biscuit section of your grocer
- grated cheddar cheese for tacos
Along with the items on the grocery list, pick up a stack of small aluminum pans. They make clean up so much easier.
